Recipe Tips and Substitutions
- Try to choose sweet potatoes that are equal in size, so that once they’re cut, the slices cook evenly.
- If you’re not a rosemary fan, thyme and oregano can be lovely too.
- If you don’t have honey, mix the rosemary with 2 tablespoons of olive oil to brush on top of the sweet potato slices, and then sprinkle them lightly with about 1 tablespoon of brown sugar.
Can you make Baked Sweet Potato Slices ahead?
Yes, you can make them up to one day ahead, keeping them in a tightly sealed container in the refrigerator. Reheat them in a 350°F oven or in the microwave. Either way, only long enough for them to get hot.
(They will still be safe to eat for up to at least five days in the refrigerator — they’re just more presentable after one.)
How long do sweet potatoes last?
You can leave raw sweet potatoes out, in a cool dark place (like the pantry), for up to about three weeks. They can be stored in the refrigerator for about six weeks.
Can you Freeze Sweet Potatoes?
- Yes. Cooked sweet potatoes, wrapped tightly, can be frozen for about a few months. (Some say up to a year — but they will taste better sooner.)
- Do not freeze them raw unless you first peel and blanch them. To do this, place the peeled potatoes in boiling water for just a couple of minutes, then “shock” them in ice water until they’re cool. Wrapped tightly, they can be frozen this way for about six months.
I hope you love this awesome Baked Sweet Potato Slices side dish as much as my family and I do!

Baked Sweet Potato Slices with Rosemary
- 1 pound sweet potatoes (about 2 medium-large), washed and dried
- 4 tablespoons olive oil, divided
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 2 teaspoons fresh rosemary, washed and dried, finely chopped
- salt and freshly ground black pepper
- Preheat the oven and prepare the pan. Preheat the oven to 375°F and adjust a rack to the center. Line a sheet pan with foil and coat all of it with about 2 tablespoons of the olive oil.
- Prepare the sweet potatoes. Slice the sweet potatoes into rounds that are approximately ¼ to ½ inch thick. Place them in a single layer on the prepared sheet pan. Use a pastry brush or your finger to rub the remaining olive oil on the top surface of the slices.
- Make and add the honey-rosemary mixture. In a small bowl, combine the honey and rosemary and then warm it in the microwave just long enough to thin it, about 8 seconds. Brush an even amount of this on top of the sweet potato slices and sprinkle lightly with salt.
- Bake. Place the sheet pan in the preheated 375°F oven and bake until the sweet potato slices are very tender, about 20 minutes. (You can check them with a fork.)
- Adjust seasonings and serve. Taste one of the slices and then sprinkle a bit more salt and little pepper to taste. (Here’s How to Season to Taste.)
